It hasn’t been long since it was announced that an Are You Afraid of the Dark? movie would actually be a thing. Now, Variety is reporting that the flick has a release date. According to the outlet, the adaptation of the Nickelodeon horror series is set to hit for October 11, 2019.

This, of course, is a prime release for something like this, as it comes a few weeks prior to good ol’ Halloween.

On board to write the script for this is IT screenwriter Gary Dauberman. While IT isn’t exactly what they’ll be shooting for with this adaptation, you at least know that Dauberman has a grasp on the overall tone of horror — even if it’s supposed to be aged down for kids.

For those who don’t know, the series Are You Afraid of the Dark was sort of an anthological one. At the beginning of each episode, a group of kids (known as the Midnight Society) would gather around a campfire. One would start a story, and in we’d dive for an episode’s worth of content. It was very much like The Twilight Zone for kids, and for those who grew up in the ‘90s, a very fun watch.
